In honor of Latinx/Hispanic Heritage Month (taking place between September 15-October 15, 2021), Fanbase Press wishes to continue that sharing of ideas, imagination, and culture by offering a special discount for the Eisner-nominated series, Quince, and the alternate history tale of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Nuclear Power.  Each series has been inspired and brought to life by Latinx and Hispanic heritage and creators,
